Reliance Jio is looking to hire a whopping 75,000 to 80,000 people during the financial year 2019. The news was confirmed by a senior company official, according to a report by PTI. “About 1,57,000 people are on the rolls today. I will say another 75,000 to 80,000 people,” company’s Chief Human Resources Officer Sanjay Jog told reporters on sidelines of an event organised by the Society of Human Resources Management.

He was replying to question on how many new recruitments would be made by the company during this financial year. On attrition rate in the company, he said it was about 32 percent in the sales and technical areas related to constructions sites.

“If it is taken at the headquarter level, it is just 2 percent. Average if you go it will come down to 18 percent,” he explained. Jog said the company was having a partnership with about 6,000 colleges, including technical institutions, across the country.

According to him, there are some embedded courses offered in these institutions and students who clear these are “Reliance ready.”

He said hiring would also be done through referrals and now with the help of social media platforms. Recruitments through referrals now accounted for about 60 percent to 70 percent of the hirings, he said adding college and employees” referrals “are the two major contributors to our hiring plans.”

Meanwhile, the telecom giant recently announced a new limited period JioFi exchange offer for customers looking to buy a WiFi dongle. According to the offer, customers can avail the hotspot device at Rs 999 upon exchanging their old non-Jio model or dongle.
